Richard Delancey series

Post by Astrodene on Mon 25 Aug 2008, 10:21

I enjoyed reading this series, basing the hero in Guernsey was good, and I enjoyed the books 'The Fireship' as it gave an insight into this type of vessel and 'So Near, So Far' for the information on early steamships (of all things!).

I read this series a while ago, but for the life of me, I cannot remember too much about it. I do remember wishing for more, so it did hold my interest ...

HNP also wrote a very entertaining "biography" of Hornblower. It was basically "life in the Georgian Navy" intermixed with Hornblower's story, continuing after C S Forester left off, and even including an account of his and Lady B's "death".
I bought a copy in the seventies, and was rather taken aback, as he seemed to be criticising CSF's work quite a bit, pointing out the errors and mistakes in the Hornblower books. I did my usual trick of lending and losing my copy. When I bought another, some years later, and in a far more impressive edition, these "snipes" had gone, replaced by a far more sympathetic text.
